Lola Rosario is an emerging poet, freelance journalist, and translator. Her first poetry chapbook, Daughter de Borikén (Editorial Pulpo) is scheduled for print in May 2024. With poems featured in The Hound Magazine and Thin Air Online Magazine (where Childhood Sueños received an Honorable Mention for the 2024 Bird in Your Hands Contest), she uses Spanglish as a literary tool of choice to connect bridges with fellow diaspora-displaced puertorriqueñes and other persones around the globe.

Lola’s social justice reporting has been published in NACLA, Palabra,  Latina Media, Green Left (Australia), Hip Latina, Latino Rebels, and TodasPR, among others. In the summer of 2023, she was among the recipients of The OpEd Project’s Write to Change the World. Her feminist musings appear in Rights of Equality, where she is the Caribbean/Latin American Contributing writer.

Hailing from New York City, in November 2021 (after a transformational three-week trip volunteering and trekking around Tanzania in January of the same year) she decided to move to her ancestral motherland of Borikén. Lola currently lives in the picturesque coastal town of Loíza where [always barefoot] she creates her craft and offers community yoga sessions.
